Anundshög




Anundshög is a tumulus in Sweden. It has a diameter of 60 metres (200 ft) and is about 9 metres (30 ft) high, dated between the Bronze Age and the late Iron Age. A fireplace under it has been dated by radiocarbon dating to sometime between AD 210 and 540. Some historians have associated the mound with the legendary King Anundhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anundsh%C3%B6g
At the foot of the mound are 2 large stone ships placed end to end, 51 metres (167 ft) and 54 metres (177 ft) long. Two other stone ships are visible. The site was a thing-place and the ship settings may be associated with this function, according to Wikipedia.
